This is something that has confused and often caused problems during parades. Why do cadets affilated to The Rifles not do light drill? Firstly i would have thought they would have jumped at the chance to have something attaching them further to thier cap badge. Secondly as remenberence dawns ever closer, i fear the we will get plagued with same problems as my unit had last year. We TA coy of The Rifles and all the local cadet forces (all ACF Rifles other than about 5 ATC ) left our TAC and headed towards the usual root round the town to the cenataph. Obvisouly being Rifleman we got the order "To your right, Quick march" and the first starts as the cadets just stand there lost. Eventually they got the hint and we started off. Cluster 2 was introduced once we got the cenataph and realised the cadets where no where to be seen, as it turned out they marched at the slow place and where miles behind and we ended waiting for them. By this stage i think everyone got the jist both us and the poor cadets wern't on the same page and instead of our CSM giving the whole parade the orders each individual unit did there own thing. Looking back it must have looked very unprofessional to the praying eyes of the public. It was a shame really. Anyways enough of my sob stories, can anyone answer me why The Rifles cadets dont do light drill?
